US Policy

  • U.S.: Former White House Aide Says Bush Focused On Iraq, Not Al-Qaeda RFE/RL 23 Mar 2004 -- The administration of U.S. President George W. Bush is again disputing allegations made in a book by a former senior aide. Two months ago, Paul O'Neill, who had been fired as the U.S. Treasury secretary, wrote that long before the war on terrorism, Bush wanted to find a way to depose Saddam Hussein. Now Richard Clarke, who resigned a year ago as the White House's coordinator on counterterrorism, writes in a new book that Bush ignored evidence that the United States was vulnerable to an attack by Al-Qaeda in the months before 11 September 2001.
